Contact dispute involving fabricated allegations of sexual abuse

Dean acted for the mother in an application by the father for contact with the parties’ child. The proceedings were complicated by an allegation made by the father that Dean’s client had sedated the father and subjected him to serious sexual abuse whilst he was incapacitated. Dean helped his client successfully refute these allegations, the Judge determined that they were both outlandish and untrue, and the application for contact remained within the contact centre.
